Courses for NUT workplace representatives
Our school and college representatives are our key local leaders. They are the first point of contact for members and can be
involved in recruitment, representing members and mobilising members to make a difference.
However, we don’t expect our representatives to do this alone.
We have developed a comprehensive support and development programme which enables reps to progressively build their
skills and confidence in Union work. Each rep will be able to follow a training programme delivered in their Region or Wales
close to where they live or work.
Reps have a legal entitlement to this training and support will be given where any rep finds difficulty negotiating their time off
from work. Courses are free to attend and travel expenses will be reimbursed. Please discuss any other barriers to your
participation with your regional or Wales office.
